Shane & Catherine Weinman
Shane and Catherine Weinman are the owners of El Perro Tapas & Bar in Penguin.
In 2016, having decided that a sea change was in order, they took a leap of faith out of the accounting world and decided a move into hospitality would be an exciting challenge and compliment their love of good food and wine.
Shane and Catherine are originally from Dunsborough, Western Australia, so packing up their house and 2 dogs – Duke and Leo, they headed off on a journey across the Nullabor to Melbourne and then on to the ferry to Devonport to start their adventure.
Now settled into life in Penguin, they are focused on working with their talented chef Saroj Shrestha to introduce all our clients to the wonders of Spanish cuisine.
They look forward to welcoming you all to El Perro.
Saroj comes to El Perro Tapas & Bar with many years of experience in the restaurant industry. He has previously worked in restaurants in Tasmania and Sydney. His Nepalese background inspires his flavours and creations. His passion for food and fresh produce has lead him to El Perro and we are excited to have Saroj join our team and look forward to him serving some exciting new dishes this summer.
Come along and try our new summer menu and experience Spanish flavours and local Tasmanian produce, beautifully presented for you to enjoy.
